there was hardly a place between my waist and knees where I could
stand to be touched much less stuck by a needle!. “Hot Spots” were
everywhere, some no more than 1/2 inch apart. Every nerve was
inflamed, every muscle in constant spasm and I was miserable, at the
end of my rope. But, not being a quitter I was willing to try anything.

sleep atl night, the fatigue is gone, the hot spots are gone and the
nerves in my legs and hips no longer scream with every step. The
spasms are slowly relaxing and now it is up to me to take responsi-

3-4 times a day, exercise and take the supplements prescribed. Thanks
to the knowledge, caring and persistence of Dr. Maxwell my life is
mine again. Also my heartfett thanks to his wife Esperanza for her
encouragement, understanding and gentle loving support during some
very difficult times. I will be back next year, but I seriously doubt It
will be as a patient because this is where my search ended end my
new lease on life started. I will be eternally grateful to Dr. and Mrs
Maxwell.
